Plush is a descriptive term, it's not a coat type. :) There's stock coat, long stock coat, (which has an undercoat), and a true longcoat, which does not have an undercoat. Most of the time when...

Well, duh. No matter what kind of training you do, that is the ultimate goal. Motivational training using food and toy rewards do not preclude realizing that goal. In my admittedly limited experience...

Same here. If she won't come to you from a few feet away there's no point in trying get her to come to you from 50 feet away. That's a long way to reel a dog in, and it's really way too far to begin...

Yes, but your implication is that the dog is ONLY motivated by the reward, and that relationship is not a factor at all. I use a lot of motivational training starting from puppyhood, and I've never...

There really is no timeline for where a dog "should" be in training. What you put into it will affect what you get out of it, along with other factors. A skilled trainer who works diligently with...

I don't think it's quite that simple. I think a dog will listen to whoever is the most consistent when it comes to expecting compliance.

I agree, Vicious. It's a good idea to use the crate from time to time even when you don't really need to, for all the reasons you mentioned.

It totally does depend on many variables. Dena fussed very little, and only got me up at night twice from 9 weeks old. Keefer was longer, and Halo too. There just is no one size fits all answer to...
